We parked and walked several miles to the top. I have to say even in August, we were comfortable, not too hot. We met nice people. It was beautiful, the grounds were well kept.

We drove to the summit and walked around...lovely views. Many hikers were there too. If we'd had more time we would have enjoyed hiking as well.

This park is a perfect day excursion. It offers breathtaking views of the ocean and surrounding area, wonderful trails through the surrounding forests, and a knowledgeable staff of park rangers. Highly recommended!

State parks are often overlooked, and missing this one is a crime. Summit Mt Battie by car or foot and enjoy sweeping views of the bay and islands.

We were in Maine at the height of fall color. We had been in Camden and decide to go to the park and the Mountain. The drive up was pretty but nothing compared to the view from the top, overlooking Camden and the bay. I...More

Are there trails in the winter that would be good for snow shoeing?
